W illiam S Burroughs, who has died aged 83, was the hard man of Hip. His aims as a writer were traditional, to entertain and instruct, but the means he chose to express them were unclassifiable, sometimes indescribable, occasionally unspeakable. Some of Burroughs's books, his first, Junkie, and Cities of the Red Night, are recognisable as novels in the ordinary sense; but his most original work came in the form of what he called 'routines': short, surreal sketches which sometimes include real characters, but more often involve the products of Burroughs's weird imagination, such as Spare Ass Annie who 'had an auxiliary asshole in the middle of her forehead' or the Lobotomy Kid. All his energy went into a battle with the agents of 'control' - call it 'police' in every form, including the thought police - and his strategies ranged from drugs to the notorious cut-up technique.
